Mezzacorona Maso di Mezzo Pinot Grigio Rosé 2020


Our next contestant in the delicious Rosé stakes is from Italy, more specifically the Dolomites, and it may surprise. Made from Pinot Grigio, many would assume that the wine will be the traditional white, as almost every Pinot Grigio/Gris we see is. In fact, if given any time on skins, Pinot Gris/Grigio will pick up a pink hue, which is exactly what has happened here. The colour is actually the palest of gold bronzes. The style is a touch more rustic than some with aromas of stewed pears, pink grapefruits and undergrowth. There is also a pleasing minerally note backing up along the length of the wine. Well balanced and with decent length, this is definitely one worth checking out.
